Since 2000, one section of Kiseido's web site has featured a collection of Japanese prints (ukiyo-e) with go themes. We have now published Japanese Prints and the World of Go, a book based on the contents of that site. The 75 prints featured in this book were carefully selected and are shown in full-color. Included are 23 new prints that were not in the original web site. Each print is accompanied by an extensive and exhaustively researched commentary to provide the reader with a deep understanding and appreciation of the print's content and the artist's intention. This book will enlarge the understanding of go players who may be unaware of the long historical and legendary background of go by presenting works that reveal some of the traditions and associations connected with the game in Japan's cultural life.
